Hope Solo has been terminated from the Women’s Professional Soccer group (WSP) after its Board of Governors had voted two days prior to terminate one of its six teams – magicJack, which Solo is a member of.
It seems that thirty team members along with other members from the U.S. World Cup team, including Abby Wambach, are turning in their uniforms due to the decision. The act has spawned from conflicts with the team’s owner throughout the season, according to The Associated Press.
The news of magicJack’s termination may serve Solo well, who told “DWTS” co-host Brooke Burke that juggling rehearsals for the show and practicing for soccer matches has been a problem.
“To go from soccer training in the morning to rehearsals in the afternoon, it’s very, very difficult,” said Solo ahead of Week 2 on “DWTS.”
This season, Hope and her dancing partner, Maks Chmerkoviskiy, received consistently low scores from the judges on “DWTS.”
“I keep trying and trying, and nothing is good enough,” said Solo during Week 5- Broadway Week.
The couple’s performance earned comments from the judges that included, “That was the worst dance of the whole season,” according to Judge Bruno. Coming to their defense, Chmerkoviskiy accused the judges of being too harsh, which was not the first time the “DWTS” judges’ panel has come under fire.
The six remaining couples, including Hope Solo and Chmerkoviskiy, will return to the dance floor next week to continue competing for the mirror ball trophy. “DWTS” airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. EST, and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST.
